UEFA (PORTUGAL):

Impressive Run Of Games: Certainly our first fact in favor of the Navigators.

They’ve won 3, drawn 1, and lost 1 of their last 5 games.

Not bad if we are to consider the win ratio, isn’t it?

It’s certain they will be looking to improve on this knowing fully well a lot is at stake.

Head To Head: Another fact in favor of Fernando Santos’s men.

The last 3 meetings between both sides have ended in 2 wins and 1 loss in their favor.

This should provide some morale boost as well, don’t you think?

Okay esteemed readers, let’s turn our attention to the Crescent stars of Turkey.

UEFA (Turkey)

Head To Head: Birthed from the last fact in favor of the Navigators.

Although Steven Kuntz’s men have lost 2 of their last 3 meetings against Portugal, their last game ended in a victory.

Don’t be surprised if the above becomes a foundation for some impressive unbeaten run of games against A Selecao.

Equally impressive Run Of Games: Just as impressive as that of the Portuguese National Football team.

The Crescent stars have also registered 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in their last 5 games.

This shows that they are an equal match against today’s opponent if we are to compare both teams based on this stat.

Impressive, isn’t it?

CONCLUSION

Hmm, picking a side here looks pretty tricky.

I will however go with a 55% assurance that Fernando Santos’ men will come out victorious.
